Wednesday Workout: Chin-ups, Pistols, Burpees, and Bear Crawls



Spend 15 minutes progressing through the following (strict) chin-up variations in sets of 5:

  • Ring Row –> Chin-up –> Chest-to-Bar –> Muscle-up –> One-Arm Chin-up Negative


3 rounds:

  • Pistol x 20-16-12
  • Burpee x 20-16-12
  • Bear Crawl the length of the mat and back


  • Use a pole or band to assist the pistols, and keep your limbs straight on the bear crawls.
